"No single therapeutic agent can be compared
in efficiency with this familiar but perfect tool...
the human hand.  If half as much research
had been expended on the principles
governing manual treatment
as upon pharmacology,
the hand would be esteemed today on a par
with drugs in acceptability and power.

 The cupping or vacuum massage is a type of therapeutic massage which is used for body sculpting. This special treatment is a perfect healing tool to complete the manual techniques. One of the biggest effects of this treatment is to improve the blood circulation and the incorporation of the vacuum effect as a modality gives the massage therapist a really powerful tool with a lot of new opportunities. The main areas of the vacuum treatment in this type of massage is the back.

Anti-Cellulite Vacuum Treatments

Price: 30 EUR / 20 mins


This treatment works by creating negative pressure at the site of the cellulite. This mobilizes the fatty tissue. The tissues that holds the fat together is also loosened in order to reduce the dimpled appearance. The fat isn't actually removed but changes the appearance of the skin.

While vacuum cellulite treatment changes the look of the cellulite it isn't a permanent solution. You will need to continue the treatment over the longer term to maintain your gains. This is due to the fact that the cellulite is actually removed. Most women typically undergo 8 sessions twice a week. Each session takes about 30 minutes: 20 mins vacuum treatment and 10 mins massage.


Anti-cellulite vacuum treatments are designed to tone the skin, eliminate toxins, increase blood circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Anti-cellulite vacuum treatments can be used on all "problem" areas including the hips, thighs, buttocks, arms and stomach areas.
The vacuum pump pulls up the skin slightly from the muscle, and a heated massage may then be performed so that the skin and surrounding tissues becomes more resilient.


Anti-cellulite vacuum treatments are not backed by extensive clinical studies or trials, and can not get rid of cellulite completely. People undergoing treatments are advised to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly so that the lymphatic system can continue to flush out toxins from the intensive massage session. While some devices and treatments may help to firm and tone the skin, this may be the result of the deep-tissue massage that often accompanies the cellulite treatment.

 

Sauna-massage Treatments

Price: 80 EUR / 70 mins (10 mins sauna + 60 mins massage treatment)

It is widely known that massage therapy is great for the muscles. It increases circulation, flushes out toxins, enhances your immune system and, of course, relaxes the client. The massage experience can be enhanced in many ways, one of which is to add a good dose of infrared sauna energy before the treatment.

Infrared saunas are both relaxing and extremely therapeutic. An infrared sauna session is great as a stand alone treatment; but it really makes a great addition to a massage. During the relaxation in an infrared sauna, the healing far infrared heat stimulates the cardiovascular, lymphatic and immune systems. This produces a deep, therapeutic, perspiration releasing toxins, burning calories, and relaxing the muscles. Please find more information about the benefits of infra saunas in the "Infra Sauna" menu.

 INFRA RED DRY SAUNA


What is a Sauna?

Saunas existed thousands of years ago.
Its purpose is to give relaxation at the same time cleanse the body from unhealthy elements. Advances in technology brought about improved and enjoyable saunas.

What is Far Infrared (FIR)?

FIR Infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight minus the skin damaging UV, which is why NASA spacecraft have utilised this heat. Infrared energy is not only safe, but hightly beneficial for our bodies. Infra red lamps actively used for medical treatments by doctors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, massage therapists for: arthritis, joint pains, stiff muscles, injury to tendons and ligaments to promoting faster self body healing effect. FIR Infrared ray is a form of light energy from the sun. It falls within the same family of Infrared Ray in the light spectrum. But due to its longer wavelengths, FIR cannot be seen by human eyes, just like the Ultraviolet Rays. The energy is absolutely essential and beneficial for human beings and all living things in the world. FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through the skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy to heat energy. The Thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.

The advantage of the FIR sauna over a conventional sauna

A conventional sauna heats the air in the chamber to a very high temperature, which in turn heats our body. A FIR sauna works differently. Neither oxygen molecules nor nitrogen molecules in the air can block the FIR wave, therefore, the FIR unique wave length penetrates directly into our bodies a couple of inches. It makes us feel quite warm and we perspire profusely, but our skin is not hurt by the hot air.

Some heavy metals accumulate under the skin and FIR sauna is very good for sweating out metal deposits

 

 Why Infrared?

Infrared heat is simply a form of energy that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific wavelength. It has nothing to do with ultraviolet light which gives you sunburn and damages your skin. Where conventional saunas transfer heat by circulating hot air, thus warm your body from your head, the infrared heat rays warm your body directly. This allows an in-depth heat in a more pleasant temperature of 110-150°F(43 - 66°C) , thus providing more health benefits and a highly enjoyable and comfortable environment.

How does it benefit us?

Our body reacts to the increased heating through the natural cooling process of perspiring. Through the perspiration process, acid and waste residue like toxins, sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and the potentially carcinogenic heavy metals are removed from the cells (especially zinc, lead, nickel, cadmium, etc). As well as the pores of our skin opening and discharging waste products , the skin sheds any old skin cells , leaving it glowing and immaculately clean, with improved tone, elasticity, texture and colour.

Cardiovascular Conditioning:

While the moisture on the surface of the skin evaporates and thus cools the body, a number of other changes occur in the body to release the heat as quickly as possible. The heart beats harder and faster , pumping more blood through the dilated blood vessels , thus achieving the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise.

Weight Control:

As our body expends energy to produce sweat (1 gm sweat requires 0.586 kcal) a moderately conditioned person can easily sweat off up to 1000gms or more in a sauna session - the equivalent to running 10-15 kms. While this weight loss can be regained by re-hydration with water, the calories consumed will not. This is a valuable system for those who don't exercise and those who can not exercise, yet want an effective weight control and fitness program ,along with the benefits that regular exercise bring.

 

Where is infrared technology used?

Infrared heat is well known for pain relief. Health professionals have used red infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems. In hospital baby care units, incubators are often equipped with infrared heating systems to keep new-born babies warm.

Advantages

1. Expel Toxins - Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine and carcinogenic heavy metals and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. Infrared Heat Therapy stimulates the sweat galnds that cleanse and detoxify the skin.

2. Reduces Stress - Infrared Heat Therapy loosens the muscles and relaxes the body prior to a massage. Many Massage Therapists use Infrared heat to provide more thorough and effective treatments.

3. Benefits your Skin - Infrared Heat improves circulation, expels dirt and chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin leaving the skin glowing and immaculately clean and makes skin beautiful and smooth. Skin tone and elasticity are improved. All of these benefits reproduce cell organisation and reduce wrinkles associated with aging. It has been shown to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns and cuts. In addition, open wounds heal more quickly reducing scarring.

4. Control Weight - Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 42 degrees c and the body sweats out fats and toxins.

5. Pain Relief - FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Many people use FIR heat as a successful treatment for arthritis, muscle spasms and rheumatism.

6. Improved Immune System - During a fever, the body heats up to elinimate viruses and attack foreign agents. Subsequently the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever". Recent studies show that colds and flu like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR Heat Therapy.
